So we went to Ross last night as my jeans are getting too loose for comfort so I went looking around for some jeans. I went into the dressing room with 7 pairs of size 12 jeans and all but one fit me perfectly! I was surprised and happy at the same time because I'm now a 12 in jeans as well as dresses. I ended up picking my favorite 2 jeans and bought those so now I have some jeans that don't give me mashed potato butt and something I don't have to pull up every 5 seconds haha. It feels good to get some new clothes but I'm definitely done clothes shopping for awhile. I'm happy and content with what I have and excited to start selling my old stuff. I posted 3 items so far and will be posting more periodically throughout the next few days. If anyone is interested in any clothes sizes 2x, 3x, 16, 18, 20, 22, or 24 please let me know and I can post pictures/information on items available.
Today is gym day! It's down pouring here so I'm expecting a lot of people at the gym. For those asking if I have other gyms in my area to go to the answer is yes of course but I'm not willing to shovel out $70.00 per month per person... to me that price is ridiculous especially for places with no where to park but street parking risking the possibility of getting ticketed. I currently go to Planet Fitness and for those who are unfamiliar with them they are $10.00 a month for the basic membership, $10.00 a year membership fee, and a $10.00 start up fee and you can cancel at any time without having to fork out extra money to do so. I love the price of our membership and it has it's own huge parking lot. The fact that they are so cheap and in the bay area where there are so many people parking spaces fill up quickly and lines start to form for machines because there are so many people who are members. It's a minor inconvenience for an amazing gym membership price.
Tonight's dinner is a chuck pot roast in the crock pot with garlic, yellow onion, and sliced carrots. I'll be adding cabbage to it later since it doesn't take long for cabbage to cook and I'll be making a side of roasted red potatoes with olive oil, italian seasonings, onions, garlic, pepper, and a touch of salt. I try to limit my salt intake even though I don't have to. I just do so to make things easier. Last night's dinner of stuffed manicotti turned out wonderfully and I have enough stuff to make some more later in the month of March.
Tomorrow morning I have my doctor appointment and the dread has already started to kick in. I'm not looking forward to dealing with the nurse who is assigned to my NP because she always seems to be in a bad mood, is snippy, and often times comes off as cold and rude. No one should have to deal with such a poor attitude especially at a medical facility! The NP wants to go over my blood pressure and figure out a course of action. If that action involves anything to do with shoving pills down my throat I will kindly decline and be on the search for a new medical provider. I've checked my blood pressure several times on my own and each time it's been normal, that should account for something. The NP I have doesn't seem to listen well and instead of saying good job on the weight loss she throws it back in my face and says it's unhealthy. Last I checked 2 pounds lost per week is more than healthy but hey what do I know? I'm just some silly patient who has no medical degree ;)
